Scripture Reading: Is. 8:19-20; Lev. 19:31 & 20: 6
Make it A Hallelujah Night
I remember going out on Halloween night trick or treating just like most kids in America. However, my mother never let us celebrate Halloween, but instead we celebrated Harvest time. The original reason for Halloween (Samhain) meant summers end and it was a festival to gather food for the dead.
Those who didn’t give were cursed, and received a trick of destruction to their property. Jack-o-lanterns were carved to ward off evil spirits and bring good luck. It was a practice done to communicate to the dead with the use of witchcraft.
In this day and age, witchcraft is still alive and witches believe Halloween to be the most important spiritual day of the year, in which they can communicate with the dead. This holiday in no way represents Christians.
Alternative’s for Christians:
Have a party film night or a costume ball of Bible heroes, give prizes and serve harvest time food for a talent or puppet show. This October 31st, have a Hallelujah for Jesus night, and let the dead stay dead! More ideas.
